The Nets Are Really Really Desperate to Sell Tickets

Friday, August 14, 2009

Just how desperate are the Nets to sell tickets this season? Desperate enough to sell jerseys of their opponents. Oh the hilarity.

But fear not you could decide to wear the Jarvis Hayes side instead of the Lebron side if you in fact are a New Jersey Net fan. But considering the probability that anybody is a New Jersey Net fan, I find that highly doubtful.

And just to top off the humor, here's a quote from the Nets CEO.

“The reality of the situation is that many of our fans like the opposing players and teams and that’s great,” said Nets chief executive Brett Yormark. “When you come to our games, the concessionaire is selling the opposing team’s jerseys, so why not give them away?”

Also, don't stay on the New Jersey Nets website too long or Devin Harris will threaten to speak to you. Scary.
